Europe's greatest model railway event, the International Model Railway Exhibition, is the highlight of the railway modelling year! Renowned manufacturers, niche suppliers and specialist dealers present their wide assortment of outstanding railway models and technically refined new products in all track gauges live und in action, as well as numerous quantities of materials and accessories for creative layout construction. Over 200 exhibiting companies and the imaginative designers of fantastic European model railway layouts, created with incredible attention to detail and depicting hundreds of entertaining everyday stories in small format, look forward to the model railway community and model fans of all ages.

But there's more to it than that! Parallel to the IMA the Live Steam Meeting brings nostalgia to life: Impressive steam models and their aroma of burning coals, steam and hot oil take spectators back to the times when steam engines still connected the world. A fascinating cosmos of mechanics and interlocking cogs and wheels that is a joy to explore!
